As I unterstand /e/ browser in my q 0.23 Galaxy S9 is based in Chrome v. 96. However, Chrome is already v. 100. I heard about various security issues being fixed with the previous chrome updates. So do you recommend to use the /e/ browser?
Personally not. I use Bromite or Brave, chromium based and they have an adblock feature. /e/ browser is a fork of Bromite and, yes, it has adblock feature but it isn’t update constatly. This is a problem.
Thanks, I installed Bromite and its working fine. Wondering why /e/ is not using the Bromite repisitory directly…
Because they want to make changes and enhancements, as described here
Following are the enhancements offered by Browser over bromite:
- Disabled by default:
- Async DNS
- Enabled by default:
- Do Not Track,
- Custom Tabs,
- Search Suggestions
- Restrict pre-populated search engines to:
- Remove Google and Chrome mentions from various strings wherever applicable feature/services were not reliant on the same
